For this series of shows, three artists consider the evolving nature of intimacy and exchange. Over the course of the exhibition, Monika Uchiyama, Peter Fankhauser, and Julian Chams will take turns transforming the gallery into solo-project spaces for two week periods. All three artists are invited to incorporate or reference each other’s work in their individual projects. Each of these will be punctuated by an opening reception and frame the following project until the exhibition closes. By entering into an exchange that strategically codifies what is too personal, too soft, or too queer, these three artists reposition the notion of vulnerability in closer proximity to control.
Peter Fankhauser: Opening Tuesday, September 11th 6:00-8:00 pm
Peter Fankhauser is an artist and educator who has held posts at The University of Nebraska-Omaha, the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, and The City University of New York, where he also received an MFA in Interdisciplinary Studio Practice. Narrative’s mutation across different media platforms has become a recurring theme in his work and a primary preoccupation. He has exhibited at independent and alternative spaces nationally and abroad including Judson Memorial Church (New York City), Death By Audio (Brooklyn), Big Law Country Club at Silent Barn (Brooklyn), AC Institute (New York City), and AALA (Los Angeles).
